    I get my feed from Rural King in Martinsville. Since I have Turkeys and Chickens together, I get the All Flock pellets and supplement oyster shell in a seperate feeder. But I have been wanting to try to get away from the processed feed. The problem has always been that to get a custom mix from a feed mill, you need to buy lots of feed at one time. I am wondering, though that since there are so many of us in the Indianapolis vicinity, if maybe we couldn't combine together to get a custom mix? Just a thought.

    Also, as I sit here typing, I can hear the coyotes howling in our field. It always makes me go out to make sure the coop is shut up tight. I also keep the window open in our bedroom, hoping to hear the joyful sound of a coyote meeting my electric poultry netting nose first. Haven't heard it yet. And I know the netting is working, because I backed into it this evening. Lit me right up!

    I get the best pictures when it's not planned.
    Walked into the living and snapped this with my cell phone.

    If I try to get good pictures and stage it, they never turn out. But just keeping my cellphone handy I'm able to get better pictures

    First of all, re my earlier post~ I didn't mean to down abrupt when I suggested a Northern-based get together at a State Park, but said I would not be in charge. I actually was interrupted while I was posting and meant to add that I would be happy to help with anything needed -- I just didn't want to be in charge. [​IMG]

    OK, now forgive me for all of the following cat photos . . .

    Tiger showed up on our back deck around eight years ago when he was about six months old. The intriguing thing was that he constantly followed our oldest, grumpiest gray tom cat named Tom-- yet another pet with an unimaginative name. Anyway, Tom was kinda like Old Salt. Even though he scowled a lot and acted tough, he was actually kind and looked out for Tiger. Tiger always had to stay a few feet away, but he idolized Tom. A few years later, Tom had to be put to sleep.

    We had a Siamese named Bostwick, but he had to be put to sleep a year ago at age 10. He was very sweet and had such plush fur, but his loud voice was annoying! I'm glad I had him, but I wouldn't want another.

    This is yet another former cat of ours named Bella. She had to be put to sleep at an old age, but it wasn't because of over-dosing on catnip! We grow our own. [​IMG]

    I didnt know If you got a custom mix you had to get a minimum amount of feed. At the feed mill I go too, ocassionally I have them mix for them. But my dad and I have known them for years.
